Song of the Day:
Bleach – Brockhampton
Brockhampton is one of the best music collectives out there but not nearly enough people know about them. With the perfect mix of sounds and lyricism, they continue to be a voice for those that previously had not had one in Rap. Their Founder, Kevin Abstract, is a true trail blazer and extremely talented. Give them a listen with their smash hit “Bleach” and listen to more of their work on their page.

Carl Nassib Changed the Game
Yesterday was a momentous day for professional sports and the queer community. Las Vegas Raiders DE Carl Nassib announced on his Instagram page that he was gay in a short video that you can watch below:
Carl became the first active openly gay player in the four major US professional sports leagues, which will hopefully blaze the path for more athletes to follow Carl’s lead and be able to freely speak on their sexuality.
In addition, he also announced a $100,000 donation to The Trevor Project, which you can read more about and donate to here:
